Liverpool closing in on Villa keeper Given

Liverpool are believed to be close to signing Shay Given from Aston Villa.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers reportedly wants the 37-year old Irish goalkeeper to push number one Simon Mignolet alongside current back-up Brad Jones.

Given has been told by Villa boss Paul Lambert that he is highly unlikely to be used ahead of Brad Guzan and Rodgers is ready to bring him to Anfield to provide guidance for £9million summer signing Mignolet.
